    Liberals seeking to blame Hillary Clinton’s election loss on alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 never answer just why Vladimir Putin would want her to lose. One would’ve thought he would want her to win, hoping she, as President, would give them even more access to U.S. uranium supplies. Still they insist that people like former national Security Adviser Mike Flynn and current Attorney General Jeff Sessions conspired with Russian officials to influence November’s results. In either case, it was not illegal for them to meet with the Russian Ambassador and perfectly sensible for them to do so. Just ask...

    In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. With Gaviglio on Dodd's lap, Kennedy jumps on top and begins rubbing his...
  • JFK the junkie: The Crown's unflattering portrayal of the 35th president as a jealous, [tr]

    He is perhaps the most portrayed president in American history. But fans of The Crown can expect to see a different side of John F. Kennedy when he appears in the show's second season. On the surface, Micheal C. Hall's Kennedy may seem ever the charming and inspiring leader, underneath the facade is a jealous, controlling husband and a high functioning drug addict. The Netflix drama, which focuses on the lives of the British royals, pulls no punches as it portrays JFK as a scheming conniver who is prone to sudden outbursts when he away from the public's gaze.

    Robert Edward Lee Oswald died this week and was given a private memorial service. He went to his grave maintaining his brother planned and carried out the assassination by himself. Oswald was one of the first to talk at length with his brother, late that night on November 22, 1963, after he heard the devastating news on the radio and rushed to Dallas. But he said he could get nothing out of his brother to indicate if, or why he killed the President. Robert Oswald, in the few interviews he gave through the years, including one rare local interview in...
  • Sen. John Kennedy votes against Trump judge nominee -- and blasts another as 'embarrassing'

    WASHINGTON — Louisiana U.S. Sen. John Kennedy lambasted several of the Trump administration's picks for the federal judiciary, calling one nominee "embarrassing" and questioning the competency of the White House office charged with vetting potential judges. Kennedy became the first GOP senator to vote against a Trump administration nominee for a federal judgeship Tuesday night, turning down his thumb at Gregory Katsas' nomination for the powerful D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The senator said Katsas, an attorney who currently serves as deputy counsel to President Donald Trump, would have an inherent conflict of interest on the appeals court because of...

    We remember the 54th anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination this week.  There is something about President Kennedy's legacy, as Alan Brinkley wrote a few years ago: President Kennedy spent less than three years in the White House. His first year was a disaster, as he himself acknowledged. The Bay of Pigs invasion of Communist Cuba was only the first in a series of failed efforts to undo Fidel Castro’s regime. His 1961 summit meeting in Vienna with the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev was a humiliating experience. Most of his legislative proposals died on Capitol Hill. Yet he was also responsible...

  • Of all the U.S. presidents to mythologize, why pick JFK?

    11/21/2017 2:34:13 AM PST · by mairdie · 68 replies
    As the books' sales show, a large and receptive public likewise continues to worship at the shrine of JFK. Polls show that the U.S. public ranks Mr. Kennedy as among the greatest of American presidents, often in the same league as Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Rarely is popular mythology so completely disengaged from historical reality. To place Mr. Kennedy in the same pantheon as Lincoln and Roosevelt is absurd. Lincoln presided over the Civil War and freed the slaves, Roosevelt laid the foundations for the American welfare state and led a reluctant nation into the Second World War....

    The White House on Friday announced the addition of five new names to President Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees. ... Two of the latest candidates, Judge Amy Coney Barrett and Judge Kevin C. Newsom, were both nominated to their current positions by Trump in May, according to the White House. Barret serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and Newsom serves on U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, the statement said. The White House announced both nominations in May.

    The Republican leader of the Senate told a crowd gathered on Sunday at the institute honoring one of the chamber’s most liberal members that the late Edward M. Kennedy’s skills as a legislator are the kind needed to help the fractious body learn to once again cooperate. Majority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Kennedy was someone who could separate the personal from the political and who stayed true to his word. Those are characteristics that will help the body function better in the future, and there are already signs of progress, McConnell said. “A real sense of renewal is...

    Newly declassified documents confirm Moscow always knew to play the American left like a fiddle. President Trump recently authorized a mass declassification of documents relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963. Among the material subsequently released, one document that instantly grabbed headlines was a December 1966 FBI memo reporting the reaction of Soviet and Communist Party USA officials to the Kennedy shooting. The document was headlined in (among other publications) the New York Post, which, in turn, was flagged at the top of the Drudge Report, which attracted a lot of readers. Old JFK conspiracy...

    The National Archives and Records Administration on Friday afternoon released hundreds more documents related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. This latest batch of 676 records could yield more interesting results than last week's release, as they are the ones intelligence agencies requested more time to review, citing national security concerns. President Trump urged the release of all remaining JFK documents last week. The majority of records from Friday's batch — 553 of them — are from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Those records were previously denied in their entirety, according to NARA.

    Have you noticed that there’s been a word missing from all these recent stories about sexual harassment in Massachusetts politics? The missing word is "Kennedy." Talk about ignoring the elephant, or should I say donkey, in the room. There has never been a family in Massachusetts (or American) politics that's come close to the sordid record of misogyny of the Kennedys. [Snip] Chappaquiddick, anyone?

    The Soviet Union theorized that President Lyndon B. Johnson could have been behind JFK’s assassination — and also feared Moscow could be blamed and attacked, according to documents in a major release of files related to Kennedy’s slaying on Thursday. The Dec. 1, 1966, FBI memo, which relayed unconfirmed speculation, noted that sources said the KGB “was in possession of data purporting to indicate President Johnson was responsible for the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy.” The memo, which was forwarded to the White House by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover with the all-caps title “REACTION OF SOVIET...

    I’ve been hearing from news reporters for major news organizations, who ask, “What’s in the new JFK files? Is there a smoking gun?” The answer is no. There is no one piece of evidence in the 113,00 pages of JFK records scheduled to be released by October 26, 2017, that will change people’s minds... But the new JFK files, if released in their entirety, will fill in the two key gaps in the JFK assassination story that have long been obscured by government misconduct, official secrecy, and lazy journalism. Think of the JFK assassination story as an incomplete mosaic. The...

Kennedy's assassination in 1963."Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened," Trump tweeted. Trump's announcement counters a report that predicted the president was likely going to block the release of some of the documents by the National Archives, which citing pressure from the CIA over possibly harmful national security information being revealed.Still, White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters told Politico Magazine that the Trump administratioin was...
